Teacher Compensation Survey Restricted-Use Data Files

The Pilot Teacher Compensation Survey (TCS) is a research and development effort to see if it is possible to collect and publish teacher-level data from the administrative records residing in state departments of education.

Seven states participated in the 200506 survey. Seventeen states participated in the 2006-07 survey. Participating states provided data on salaries, years of teaching experience, highest degree earned, race/ethnicity, and gender for each public school teacher. Data on government expenditures on employee benefits were also solicited, but only three states were able to provide even partial employee benefits data.

The Research and Development (R&D) series of reports at the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has been initiated to share studies and research that are developmental in nature. The results of such studies may be revised as the work continues and additional data become available.

These data present results that do not reach definitive conclusions at this point in time because the data are tentative, and the methodology is new and developing. Therefore, the techniques and inferences made from the data are tentative and subject to revision. To facilitate the process of closure on the issues, we invite comment, criticism, and alternatives to what we have done. Such responses should be directed to
